For Easter weekend, kite enthusiasts from far and wide will be heading to the sandy beaches of Châtelaillon-Plage, south of La Rochelle in Charente-Maritime.
In the vibrant April sky, there's always room for the sunshine and the beautiful rays of light it creates through the clouds. The ideal setting for the send-off of the numerous kites of all shapes and sizes about to meet up for the 26th year running in this pretty seaside town with its Belle Epoque architecture.
If you're feeling contemplative, you're in the right place. Up in the air, blowing with the wind or in the impressive team choreographies, you'll be totally surrounded by the movement of sails and banners dancing in the sea air or in front of ingenious wind machines.
If you're feeling energetic, there's something for everyone: kite decorating for the youngsters, land sailing with a kite or a sail, water surfing and many other surprises just waiting to be discovered during these 3 days where you can throw your worries to the wind!
